Chinese MSA list of approved contractors for the Control of Marine Pollution from Ships further postponed

Reference to our previous posts dated 28/2/2010 and 30/4/2010 regarding appointment of approved Oil Spill Response Organizations (OSRO) by Chinese MSA, we have been informed that the already delayed list, planed to be published within August, is now further delayed and is going to be released in October 2011.
It is advisable that operators do not enter any contractual agreements with any OSROs until the approved list is released by Chinese MSA.
